Autumn/Winter Exhibition 2017
From September the gallery will be displaying new works by Andy Baerselman, Jo Vane, Mark Beaumont and Marie Boyle.
Jo Vane's 'Rockpool' continues her ongoing exploration of the coastal landscape and the features that define it. This new work is larger and more ambitious in scale yet it maintains a feeling of intimacy with a small 'pool' of precious silver at its centre. While the title references an existing natural formation, the interpretation as a sculpture is very much abstract in form but still organic in feel. The work being wall mounted plays further on this dual nature and inverts the notion of a peering down into a pool.
Summer Exhibition 2017
From June the gallery will be displaying new works by Michael Turner, Ben Dearnley, Paul Vanstone and Richard Thornton at the gallery and also at the InterContinental London - The O2 hotel in London.
The T5 Gallery continues the successful relationship established with the InterContinental London - The O2 hotel situated on the Greenwich peninsula, London with a new sculpture by Richard Thornton.
Richard is known for his crafting of stainless steel into contemporary organic forms.
With 'Folding Sail' Richard references the important maritime history of Greenwich and the peninsula, also echoing the subtle maritime and Greenwich meantime references present throughout the hotel.

Spring Exhibition 2017
From March the gallery will be displaying new works by Andy Baerselman, Michael Turner and Zil Hoque.
Zil Hoque will present two new paintings, with insight provided below by the artist:
"Most of the fighting bulls are bred from the area of Lidia in Spain. A pair of these are seen in their glory, running wild in a natural dramatic landscape soaked in a pre-storm, silver light. The subtleties of this light is contrasted with the hard linear forms of the musculature of the bulls.
This painting is a homage to the power, beauty and majesty of the Spanish bull and is in no way an acceptance of bull fighting."
"Based on an Islamic myth/history or legend of the original stock mares “Al Khamsa” the five horses that belonged to the prophet Mohammed.
It is said that after a long and arduous trail in the desert the herd, including the five, came across an oasis. The entire herd rushed to the watering hole but when Mohammed recalled them from their dash of thirst, only 5 mares obeyed and returned. These five are said to be the faithful and were honoured as stock mares of all the Arab horse bloodline.
In the painting, the five are seen running in front of a dust cloud formed by the herd prior to be re called."
New Year Exhibition 2017
From December the gallery will be displaying new works by Andy Baerselman, Michael Turner, Michael Speller, Mark Beaumont, Huw Williams, Will Rochfort, Paul Vanstone and Nikki Taylor.
Andy Baerselman's 'Prowling Jaguar' is a masterful work in wood with a seamless form that flows from tail to face. The deep tones across the body work to highlight the muscular form of the beast which is positioned as if ready to claim its prey. The work is a representation of a Jaguar, clear in appearance but also very much a sculptural piece as evidenced by the highly refined and somewhat abstracted face.
